Mustang Million Winners plus some!

Here you go. Tom Hagwood and Merv-the winning run!

More are on the Mustang Million FB page, and if they get posted to youtube I will certainly share them. There were some pretty amazing runs from all.

Here is one of Bobby Kerr's 2 that made the finals....I believe he got second on this one, third on the other, but I may have that reversed.

Oh, wow, I'm loving that first one! That is one heck of a handy little horse. Too bad that most average riders would't be able to ride him without falling off . He's too well trained and too sensitive for someone who's not an advanced rider with experience riding horses like that.

I'd love to have that little booger in my barn though, I adore horses who will just jog right off leaning into the rope like that.

The second was good, but too many "tricks" for my taste.

I'm not even sure how the MM works. Is like like the makeovers where the horses are sold or adopted out after the competition or do they actually belong to the trainers and go home with them?

In the Million they actually are auctioned PRIOR, then trained. Some are available after the competition, others stay with the trainers or go to the folks who sponsored the training, and become the new owners. I would love to know how much some of the winning horses went for in the beginning. They all start at $125, but I know some sold for as much as $14K right out of the pen unhandled. They had several levels this time, from youth to legends, and in hand as well as ridden. I wish I had been there for the week-it has been fun to follow on FB for sure, and amazing what these horses can do in such a short period of time. The auction was in the beginning of May.

You should try it! I do think that they need to somehow separate the "pros" somehow......Like Bobby Kerr who has won a couple of times.....He sort of reminds me of Tommy Turvy. Lots of props etc....leaves me wondering what the horse can really do, but I am sure that is sorted out in the other aspects of the competition throughout the week. I know my friends had fun competing, finished lower than they had hoped, but still ended up with a great horse who will go home to her forever home with the sponsor. I have no idea if they will do it next year, but know that they are picking up another on the way home for another competition in January that is an "invitation only" event for trainer who have been top 10 in one of the Extreme makeovers, and they have done it twice and been top 5 both times. Amazes me to watch each and every time, and each Mustang is amazing.

I was present for the finals....REALLY impressed with all the performances, especially given the time frame for training. I was impressed with both Bobby's horses....they looked relaxed, soft, and consistent. I try to go to at least one "Mustang Makeover" event a year, the first being in 2008. Didn't see the number of competitors or fans back then.....last night was packed!

I heard it was fabulous and very well attended. While I like Bobby, the props are a bit much for my taste, and I think some of the horsemanship is lost in the performance. May Kitzmiller going bridleless was awesome......as were several others I saw clips of. I am excited to see what the new mustang coming home with my friends is like. I just love watching the transformation of these animals.

MY mustang is not going to be happy I went...she got 30 days on her last year & I haven't really ridden her since (too many horses). I' ve been inspired....I'm dragging her butt up to the barn and furthering her education...well, at least to the best of my limited abilities, lol.

I'm really happy that people are becoming more knowledgeable about 'stangs in general. There are still way too many people who think they are only good for dog food, but those people aren't as prevalent as they used to be.

I tell you, the Makeovers and this are the best thing to ever happen to Mustangs.

What nice horses and great riders. And so versatile. They all seem really happy in their jobs. I get the warm fuzzy's.
